Mike Geiser Drives From Ohio To New Egypt’s Victory Lane

 

New Egypt, NJ (July 11, 2009) –  Pro Buggy driver Mike Geiser drove all the way from Orrville, Ohio to Victory Lane at New Egypt Speedway on Saturday night as part of the XOR Extreme Racing series sponsored by R.H.I. Professional Contracting Incorporated. While it looked like then leader Bob Klaus, who had finished second in both of his heat races, would finally pull off the victory, a bobble right before the final turn on the last lap allowed the hard charging Geiser to take the lead and the victory. Rounding out the top five in the Pro Buggy feature was David Lofland of South Hampton, NJ; Craig Pittman of Jefferson Hills, PA; and Henry Malaty of Jackson, NJ.
 
Also in action on Saturday night were the 8 Cylinder Trucks, Stock  Buggy, 4 and 6 Cylinder Truck, and Rock Buggy divisions. Jeremy Crone of Allentown, PA visited Victory Lane for the 8 Cylinder Trucks after Gary Rothermel, the comeback story of the evening as he did not start his second heat, lost the lead. After a hard fought battle between Tom Surais of Mays Landing, NJ and Steven Seastrand of Hurleyville, PA, Surais emerged victorious in the Stock Buggy division. In the 4 and 6 Cylinder Truck division Rich Barlow of Toms River, NJ beat Jeff Summelrock to visit Victory Lane. In maybe the toughest competition of the evening Lou Levy of Parkton, MD beat heavy favorite Doug Bigelow after Bigelow got stuck on the final rock climb after only a few laps of competition.
 
Next up at New Egypt Speedway is the Garden State Sportsman Shootout on Tuesday, July 14, 2009. This special race night will feature the New Egypt Sportsman racing 50 laps for a big purse, featuring a cool $3000 to win. Drivers from New York and Pennsylvania are expected to invade the NJ oval for the big payday. Joining the Sportsman on the track will be the Super Stocks. Gates open at 5 p.m. with racing starting at 7:30 p.m. 
 
The Modifieds will be back in action at New Egypt on Saturday, July 18, for Christmas in July sponsored by Advantage Financial. Local Marines will be at the track collecting unwrapped toys and cash donations for Toys for Tots in exchange for raffle tickets to win great prizes. Along with the Modifies, the Sportman, Outlaw Stocks, and SS Sprints will be in action.
